Take a big bag of salad to work and nibble that, also have a pint of water to fill you up, sitting by your side.
I would read that and use it as motivation to ride more. Every extra mile is a little bit less salad. Or something like that. Since I became addicted to reading diet and nutrition threads on STW, I have lost any idea of what I'm supposed to eat. The one constant in my life is that if you ride a lot, you can eat wtf you like within reason and the law.
I would take anything Molgrips says with a large ladle of full-fat salad dressing btw, this is the man who lived on the edge of the Peak District and couldn't find any local trails worth riding
ps: please don't hit me with your logic stick, Moley...
